Meet Patti Foster
Patti Foster’s life is a testament to the intense love she has for others. Her joy and laughter refresh those around her, and she welcomes opportunities to influence lives through her motto: M.A.D. Now! – Make A Difference Now!
She has traveled with a fine arts team to Australia, toured with the university choir to the British Isles and spent a week in the heart of Mexico with a mission group. Performances with the Fort Worth Chamber Orchestra and the Sam Houston State University Orchestra further broadened her scope of music and expression.
Since 1990, Patti has been in media – a voice-over talent and radio personality for various Christian stations in Texas/Louisiana and Indiana/Michigan.
On June 18, 2002, Patti’s life came to an abrupt halt! A tractor-trailer rig, going 67mph and pulling a trailer full of cars, barreled into the back of their stopped Tahoe. Patti was ejected and suffered multiple bodily injuries along with a horrific severe brain injury. One of her friends died in the crash as Patti’s body lay in a coma for 6 weeks.
Patti is an urgent advocate of brain injury. She has written her own raw story, COPING with TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY: One Woman’s Journey from Death to Life, available as a paperback, eBook, and audio on her website. Plus she has been invited to write her miraculous brain injury story in numerous paperback books, as well as an audiobook. She serves as Vice President of Hope After Brain Injury and was selected to the Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council (TBIAC) and is a Committee Chairperson. Patti is also a member of the North Texas TBI Model System Advisory Council, serves on the BIAA-Texas Division Strategic Planning Committee, and travels often as a speaker for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

On June 18, 2002, Patti was severely injured in a horrific traffic wreck. She suffered traumatic brain injury and was in a coma for six weeks…her life hung in the balance. From how to eat to once again being able to recognize and remember the people she loved, Patti had to re-learn everything.

Statement Of Faith
- I believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
- I believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- The foundation of my proclamation of faith rests on these two passages of Scripture: John 3:16 and John 14:6
- John 3:16 – “16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
- John 14:6 – “ 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
